Okay, so I'm tasked with building a new component. You can
have a look at the UI I was given
As you can see.. there are two components within this
component. They need to interact with one another, but they
actually represent the same data structure. Initially, I have laid
out this component based on an HBox object. Within that component
are two other components, both based off List objects. The List
Object components implement custom ItemRenderers in order to handle
You'll also notice that the top line "Query" should be static
and the left-most column in each component should be fixed as well.
There is a red box in the upper component showing the segment of
the string sequence currently visible in the component below it
(I'm thinking a Sprite object holding a graphics.drawRect).
1. Has this already been done before? Am I re-inventing the
2. Because of the scrolling requirements, would a DataGrid be
a better option? If so, can a DataGrid perform scmooth scrolling
vs. the inherent behavior of only scrolling a column at a time?
3. Any thoughts on my little red tracking fellow?
I appreciate any help anyone can give me. I'm new to Flex and
trying to get up to speed rapidly.
